 Gudivada, July 22 (prajaamaravati): State Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Minister Kodali Srivenkateswara Rao (Nani) has said that the Gudivada-Kankipadu main road is being widened and developed at a cost of Rs 16.10 crore.  Minister Kodali Nani spoke to reporters at Krishna District Gudivada on Thursday.  Motorists traveling to Vijayawada via Gudivada town are facing many difficulties on the Gudivada-Kankipadu main road.  Due to crop canal on both sides of the road, the road margins are shrinking within a few days of the road being built.  He said that as it was a single road, vehicles traveling in opposite directions in the area where the pits were formed were at risk of accidents.  He has won the Gudivada constituency four times in a row as an MLA and this time as a minister, he has given high priority to the expansion and development of the Gudivada-Kankipadu road.  He said Rs 16.10 crore has been released for road construction.  Gudivada - Kankipadu road is wide in one area, the canals on both sides of the road are very deep and retaining slopes have to be constructed.  The focus is on building this road solidly.  As part of this, we are constructing a 10 meter CC road from Pedakalva Center in Gudivada town to KTR Women's College, Andhra Nalanda Municipal High School, GVR Kalyana Mandapam to Mandapadu Railwaygate.  Currently, the road is only five and a half meters wide. The silos were buried before the road was built.  He also said that a 10 meter BT road would be constructed from near the over bridge in the town to the fresh water reservoir in Bethavolu.  From this reservoir, a 6.7 meter road to Pedaparupudi Mandal Bhushanagulla near Akkineni Nageswara Rao College will be constructed as a 10 meter road.  Retaining slope will be constructed for crop canal on the left side of this road.  A retaining wall will be constructed from Bhushanagulla to crop canal on the right hand side to Pedaparupudi Bridge, the center of the region.  The road, which is five and a half meters wide, will be widened to 10 meters.  The New Development Bank has been given Proposals were sent with Rs 100 crore.  At present, the retaining wall construction work has reached bed level and the Gudivada-Kankipadu main road widening and development work will be completed in one to two months.  Minister Kodali Nani said the problems posed by traffic congestion would be eliminated and the road would be strengthened by constructing retaining walls.
